Nearly two-thirds of the lower 48 states face an elevated flood risk through May, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
NOAA recently published an outlook that shows which areas of the U.S. could be affected.
“This outlook will help emergency managers and community decision-makers all along the nation’s major waterways prepare people and businesses for the flood threat,” said Neil Jacobs, Ph.D., acting administrator at NOAA. “In addition to the safety aspects, our rivers are critical to the economic vitality of the nation, supporting commerce, recreation and transportation. NOAA forecasts and outlooks help people navigate extreme seasonal weather and water events to keep the country safe and moving forward.”
